10:30 pm
ball two. blanco shot a ball in to the gap in right center and then turned on the jets and made it to third easily. ahead on the count here, 2-1. sanchez flapping at it. cabrera makes the play. got him at first! the stretch for out number one. >> tim: terrific play by prince fielder. blanco tried that three times. finally made contact. a quick strong throw. but fielder was off the bag there, and then tried to come back. blanco made have beaten the throw. i think the right foot was up in the air when the hand was on the bag. >> joe: i agree.
10:31 pm
sanchez is now 0-3. struck out twice. flies to right. it looked like the foot of fielder, the right one was up in the air when the hand would have crossed from gregor blanco. >> tim: yeah. here it is one more time. he is not on the bag there. it's up. hand touches the bag. he was safe. >> joe: i agree. fielder did get the foot back on bag but looked like blanco touched it. >> tim: it appeared that way. still a fine play by fielder to get the call. >> joe: still virtually impossible to seedy fintive proof that he was safe and the foot was off the bag. crawford has his second hit of the night with two out. he had a two-out rbi base hit in the second. made it 2-nothing. now he is on with two out here in the seventh.
10:32 pm
it will bring in angel pagan, who put a charge in the ball the last time up. he gave a glance over at tigers dugout to see if leyland was coming out. benoit up earlier. he is up again and read ready. but for now it will be anibal sanchez. trying to get pagan for the fourth time tonight. strike one. bottom of the seventh inning it will be avila, infante, and austin jackson. >> joe: fister was good in game two. sanchez, good here in game three. he has allowed two runs,
10:33 pm
that's it. almost through seven innings, he has allowed only six hits. >> tim: nice to see doug fister in the clubhouse tonight walking around and looking fine, smiling. no hill effects from the frightening line drive off his head in game two. >> joe: said are you tired of the questions? he said, "it just means people care." >> tim: that's right. guys love to answer questions like that. >> joe: he is totally fine. ken rosenthal, did you talk to doug? >> ken: i did. no cat scan or mri. he is fine. not even a bump on his head. really, i talked to him about surviving that whole thing. he said hey, my dad larry was a defensive lineman at fresno state. if you can walk off the field you walk off the field. so, near serious situation was not all that serious as it turned out. >> joe: 0-1, the count on pagan. one on, two out. ball and a strike.
10:34 pm
scutaro next, either here in the seventh. i imagine if it's in the seventh it will be against benoit. >> tim: right. >> joe: or leading off in the eighth. tigers had a pitcher rick porcello up way back in the second. benoit and smyly have both been up. benoit more than once. anibal sanchez has persevered. the problem is his teammates have not been able to string together hits. one ball, one strike, on pagan. now strike two.
10:35 pm
>> tim: anibal sanchez still has the good breaking ball and good changeup. >> joe: the 1-2, runner goes. throw down by avila. not in time. now an easier rbi chance for pagan. the count of 2-2. >> tim: again, that is the problem. when a pitcher has a good changeup or a curveball, it takes longer to get to the plate. it was down in the dirt. alex avila had too much to do before he made the play. and the second stolen base of the night for the giants. >> joe: now a 2-2 pitch. big run sitting out there for the giants, as pagan hooks it foul.
10:36 pm

10:47 pm
jackson, as quintin berry will be the hitte hitter. >> joe: berry hit in to a double play and struck out with the bases loaded. strike one. >> tim: last inning you mentioned the word "desperation." this tigers are desperate to get berry on base so the big gun can come up again. this time with two on, not three on. >> joe: chased the pitch. that good delivery from lincecum. the count 0-2. jeremy affeldt, the left-hander cranks it up. the last 14 innings for the tigers hitters, not

10:55 pm
fly ball to left. well hit. back at the wall. off the base of the wall. and sandoval is in to second. with a one-out double. he has two more hits tonight. >> tim: reaching out. pitches the ball off the plate. trailing away, a two-seam fastball. sandoval once again shows power the other way. one of the home run, hit off justin verlander. in game one. >> joe: almost rode that thing all the way out of here. that is now 23 hits in this post season. that is the most ever for a giant in any single post season. he is at second. one out. batter is posey, takes a strike. >> tim: i was interested in quotes made by will clark, the
10:56 pm
exgiant, excardinal. great player. who said sandoval has the best hand-eye coordination he had ever seen. when you think about it, to be that much of a fastball hitter, you to have the best hand-eye coordination. swings off the plate. hits them. >> joe: runner at second. one out. 0-1 pitch. away to posey. he has driven in seven in the entire post season. one in this world series. >> joe: here is the 1-1 pitch. with a runner at second. one out. posey trying to add to a

10:58 pm
fastball. >> joe: with two out, runner at second. the bat her be pence -- the batter will be pence. that will bring jeff jones the pitching coach out. pence all of a sud season hot. he has walked tonight. two singles. with the left-handed hitting brandon belt on deck. we will see how aggressive the tigers want to be with hunter pence. fox n.f.l. sunday tomorrow. talk about eli manning a the clutch performances that he is known for now across the n.f.l. starting at noon eastern, 9:0:00 pacific. before a great slate of games. good early games an funnel to a big one late. with the giants and the

11:00 pm
hit, it's your fault. if he doesn't, well -- then you did what i told you. >> joe: one ball, one strike. runner at second. two out. to the shortstop peralta. gets a high hop. gets his man. that sends us to the bottomf the eighth inning. as pence is retired for the first time tonight. the big bats of cabrera, fielder, and delmon young coming up. against lincecum. protecting a 2-nothing lead. layaway's back, right? yep, you can pay a little at a time.

11:04 pm
two-out walk in the seventh. now works to cabrera. up by two. shattered bat. nice diving stop. crawford. what a play! the defense continues for giants. and crawford is right in the middle of it again. >> tim: that might have kept tim lincecum in the game, too. had that ball trickled through, then the left-hander comes in to pitch to fielder. great play by brandon crawford! shattered bat, lunge, made the play. great throw. what a play! >> joe: what a player he is becoming defensively for the giants. >> tim: you bet! >> joe: it would be 19 straight errorless games for crawford. guys committed 18 in the regular season but none in post season when it
11:05 pm
counts the most. joaquin arias is taking over for sandoval. he is in the game at third. trying to add to the defense. behind lincecum. fielder. takes strike two. prince, 0 for 3 tonight. one out of nine in this series. lincecum is rolling. 0-2. struck him out on three pitches. two out. the world series is sponsored by wal-mart. layaway is back in wal-mart on select items now through september 14. nikon one. different kind of nikon. by taco bell steal a base, steal a taco. live mas. two out, nobody on, here is delmon young.
11:06 pm
d.h. for the tigers, strike one. javier lopez was up. affeldt is back up. they have been flip-flopping the left-handers. and santiago casilla with the right-hander for the giants in their pen. hard hit, right at crawford. picks it up. and safe at first. bell can't dig it out. >> tim: it will be an error on crawford, but he had time. after he dropped it, he tried to hurry the throw. and in between hops belt couldn't come up with it. but had crawford taken his time more, made a good throw. he gets young easily. >> joe: so the inning continues on the first error of the post season by crawford.
11:07 pm
>> joe: now in a 2-nothing game, andy dirks takes a strike. no sign of the left-hander, with affeldt getting loose. bochy like the way lincecum is working. trying to get around the error and finish the eighth. what a stab by posey. >> tim: that is a terrific play. by a guy who has great hands. watch. that was so hard. two-seam fastball that kept going, going, going away. posey came up with it. >> joe: now the 1-1. the bottom falling out of the pitches. that's strike two. >> tim: kind of hands it takes to do that? good ones. >> joe: that and a wild pitch keeps young at first.
11:08 pm
there with two out. 1-2 pitch coming to dirks. strike-out ends the inning and lincecum gets around the error. tigers still can't find a big hit. ninth inning of game three. giants batting. up 2-nothing. e-o we think some things are worth getting up early for ke a better breakfast so on august eighth we woke up a sleepy town to show that eating well can be easy and delicious with jennie-o turkey bacon and sausage cooked thoroughly to 165 definitely very good it's excellent this is delicious makes me want to eat breakfast more it's time for a better breakfast i can't stop eating this make the switch look for jennie-o at a store near you [ man ] hello!!!! hello!!!!

11:11 pm
>> joe: phil coke takes over. third pitcher of the night. sanchez, benoit, now coke, trying to keep it 2-nothing. the real interesting decision will be in the bottom of this ninth inning, at least to me. for bruce bochy. his closer is right-han right-handed. and yet he has a pitcher in tim lincecum, who certainly knows how to finish games himself as a starter. his stuff looks untouc untouchable. so bochy is going to have to decide whether to run tim lincecum back out there, or go to sergio romo, his closer in the bottom of the inning. >> tim: pitched only 2-1/3 innings so if he does come back in this series, it will be in game seven, if, of course, there is one. >> joe: 32 pitches so far for lincecum. that is not an issue. starter all year.
11:12 pm
activity for the giants in their pen. say this, whoever gets loose out there, somebody starts throwing they are not going to pitch any better than lincecum has to this point. belt fouls one off avil avila. 1-1. inside of the right knee for avila. >> tim: in game one, lincecum came in, retired seven in a row. five strike-outs. tonight no, hits again. two base runners. a walk and an error on crawford. three strikeouts. he has been superb. >> joe: came on the air talking about how much better tigers were this year facing right-handed pitching after losing to back-to-back lefties in games one and two. hitting over 20 points higher against
11:13 pm
right-handers. the tigers have been totally shut down tonight. that ball two. 2-1. as a group hitting less than .179 in this world series. after all the talk the pitching of the tigers holding yankees to a .157 team ampl average in the alcs. coke has not allowed a run in the post season. 2 for 2 in save chances, trying to keep at it two-run game. belt. count 2-2. on deck, another lefty, blanco and the switch-hitter sanchez. bottom of the inning, peralta, avila and infante. bottom three.
11:14 pm
>> joe: here is the 2 2-2. phil coke. got him. one away. go back to that play that posey made with one on, two out, corralling that sinker down and away. the home plate umpire fieldin culbreth wearing a mic. here is what he thought. >> there is no way you caught that baseball. >> joe: "there is no way you caught that baseball." that is the way he did it. >> tim: kind of serious. posey using that glove like a sestin in hilie. >> joe: strike to blanco. >> tim: that is an 88, 90-mile-per-hour pitch. so far outside, and how he wraps it so quickly, believe me, that takes an awfully good set of
11:15 pm
hands to do that. >> joe: blanco right in the middle of the only scoring in this game three. in the hole, 0-2. in the second, lead-off walk to hunter pence. he stole second on a strike-out by belt. moved to third on a wild pitch. scored on the rbi triple by this man, gregor blanco in to right center. and then blanco scored on a two-out rbi hit to center by crawford. that is it. since then it's been all vogelsong and lincecum. 1-2 on blanco. sanchez the switch hitter. d.h. tonight, 0-3 on deck.
11:16 pm
>> joe: 2-2. sergio romo is up. >> joe: blanco is at the plate. romo is in the bullpen. here is a 2-2 pitch from coke. got him on the outside corner. two out. blanco does not agree. >> tim: gregor thought that pitch was outside. breaking ball from coke. >> joe: now sanchez. with two out, nobody on. again, the bottom three
11:17 pm
in the order coming up for the tigers if the bottom of this ninth. down two games to nothing. strike one. good pitch down and away. >> joe: two out bases empty. the 0-1 strike two. sanchez in danger of striking out to the third time tonight. on the line at the bottom of the ninth inning, no team has ever in the history of the world series come back down three games to
11:18 pm
nothing. that would be the case if the giants hang on. here comes the 0-2 pitc pitch. 3-nothing deficit for the tigers when they line up tomorrow night behind max scherzer against matt cain. scherzer and cain two right-handers in game four tomorrow night. only happened once, that was in 2004. history of the post season. baseball in the alcs. red sox beating the yankees. here comes a 1-2 pitch. two-out, nobody on. struck him out. sending to us the bottom of the ninth. the bottom of the order coming up. peralta, avila, infante. trying to get something going. down by two. in game three. e okay. i'm calling the studio, matthew. you're not shooting today. he bought it.

11:22 pm
ninth inning and obviously tomorrow flight, the tigers will have the luxury of sending justin verlander back to the hill. trying to get this series back to san francisco. right now in game three down by just two. it's sergio romo in the game. to deal with the bottom three in the line-up. the tigers' hitters and the difference from the alcs to this world series. three games, three total runs, hitting .179. one home run. first up here in the bottom of the ninth inning. jhonny peralta. >> tim: we were talking about it last inning. it's tempting to leave tim lincecum after throwing only 32 pitches in this game. sergio romo has saved 14 of 15 this year. one blown save. that is it. >> joe: he saved game
11:23 pm
two. second save of the post season. giants lost their closer brian wilson in april. it has evolved to where it's romo's job. bottom of the nine's inning. peralta. ball one outside. lincecum, 2-1/3. no runs. no hits. struck out three, walked one. pitched around an error. vogelsong in line for the win. here is a 1-0 pitch. try to hold up. might have been a strike anyway. 1-1. >> tim: romo fastball, slider. primarily sliders to right-handed hitters. >> joe: here is a 1-1 pitch to peralta.
11:24 pm
on the outside corner. strike two. three in a row. >> tim: that one perfect. >> joe: peralta lined out twice. 0 for 3 on the night. trying to get on to start the ninth inning. romo's 1-2. he did not go. 2-2. >> tim: the right-handed hitters just have to take the outside part of the plate. away from romo. that was very close. i think a good call by brian o'nora. >> joe: so the count,
11:25 pm
2-2. fouled away. nothing but sliders from sergio romo. >> tim: five in a row. >> joe: now a 2-2. breaking ball again. this one a little more on the plate. peralta who has been reaching for last few pitches fouled it away. in the regular season he hit .239. 13 home runs. he is one for ten in
